Do I think I’m faster than I really am? Or, am I faster than I think I really am? ———
I yo-yo between these two thoughts depending on a variety of things- how my workouts go, how much energy I have, how positive my mindset is, etc. Sometimes I wish someone would tell me what my potential was, so I just knew and could plan everything out around that. However, when I really stop to think about it, I’d rather not know my potential. What fun is there in that? I’d rather keep trying, keep striving to crush new goals, and continually learning more and more about the inner workings of my brain and body connection. Sure sometimes I set too lofty of goals, and sometimes I sandbag it thinking I’m not capable of certain paces, but overall I’m still seeing progress, and even more importantly still having fun with running. So, really that’s all that matters. -
